Roasted Potato & Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

Meet my new favorite salad: Roasted Potato & Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing. I say that for pretty much every salad I eat. Then I eat that salad on repeat until I find a new favorite. First it was Angela’s vegan Caesar salad, then it was my everyday salad with tahini dressing and chickpea crouton, after that it was my sweet potato and toasted bread winter salad and now this one. I go from one salad to another, but I always make one of my old favorites once in a while. I honestly wouldn’t be able to pick a real favorite. It changes every day.  So this one is new to my list of favorite salads. I first made it a few weeks ago when I was low in ingredients (pretty much the strategy behind…

Roasted Carrot & Chickpea Buddha Bowl

I love Buddha bowls. There’s something about throwing all of your ingredients together in a bowl that I love. Maybe because it’s simple or maybe it’s the roasted vegetables that I love so much. This roasted carrot and chickpea Buddha bowl is an example of the meals I make on a regular basis.  When I cook without making a specific recipe, I rarely make the same thing twice. I usually just use whichever ingredients I have left in my fridge and hope for the best. This meal is a perfect example of a meal I’ll make at home when I’m not following a recipe. I love roasting vegetables and making a bowl with hearty ingredients and a flavorful dressing. I made this one a few weeks ago when I…

Everyday Salad with Tahini Dressing & Chickpea Croutons

Meet my go-to salad.  I’ve been eating this salad almost weekly for over a year now and I never get tired of it. What does that tell you? I just love crispy chickpeas and tahini with greens. I can’t get enough of it! What I love most about this salad is that you can change it up with whichever vegetables you have on hand. Here are some of my favorites: Kale Arugula Spring mix Romaine lettuce Spinach For added crunch, I like to use: Cabbage Shredded carrots Chickpea croutons Sunflower seeds or pepita seeds You probably have some of these ingredients on hand already? I know I always have one leafy green in my fridge, a few cans of chickpeas in the pantry and mason jars full of nuts and seeds. And I almost…

Sweet Potato & Toasted Bread Winter Salad

Finally a savory recipe!!! Have you noticed that all of my recipes were desserts lately? Chai-Spiced Cut-Out Cookies, Dark Chocolate Mint Truffles, Easy Holiday Truffles, Creamy Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate… I’m not sorry about that at all, but it would probably be a good idea to share a healthy salad recipe once in a while. I suppose. This is actually the first salad recipe I share on the blog, so it was about time! And I think it’s a great one to start with. 🙂 Being a few days away from Christmas, I still wanted to share a holiday inspired recipe. So to make this a winter salad, I decided to add warm roasted sweet potatoes, pecans, dried cranberries and a white wine vinaigrette. Those are all winter salad ingredients in my opinion. Am…
